Men of the cloth and those running ministries as well as other charitable organizations often desire for their congregations or donors to give money to help the poor and down trodden. But this giving is occurring while governments—especially the U.S.—with and through their cronies use fiat money and fiat fractional reserve credit to cause destruction (stealing, killing and destroying) of others. FAILURE TO DEAL WITH THE ROOT CAUSE, WHICH IS ECONOMIC DESTRUCTION, RESULTS IN DEALING WITH MERE BRANCHES. This destruction (SEE THE BOLD ABOVE) results in the poor and down trodden. Giving money to those who are being destroyed does not deal with the root problem; and it is like putting ointment on a finger that contains a splinter. Remove the splinter—the root cause of the infection! Giving money to put ointment on an infection caused by a splinter does not help because the splinter is still in the finger. The root cause is NOT being discussed and dealt with. Fiat money (debt) provided by the Federal Reserve to the government and fiat fractional reserve credit (creation of credit out of thin air) is the splinter and with the uses of this debt and credit by the government and its cronies, countries and people are controlled and they are stolen from, killed and they die. So the facts show that giving money to the poor only makes matters worse (the book The Fifth Discipline shows this clearly as well as other books and writings). I can scan and send pages from this book.
So pastors and those running ministries and charitable organizations are raising money to help the poor–in the name of the Lord–but the real cause is the government (and central bank, elitist government-connected companies, fiat money and fiat fractional reserve credit). So they are raising money that goes to waste (I can easily show why it is wasted) in the name of the Lord because they do not understand the truth (economics, the government, central bank, etc.) So because they do not know the truth (aletheia) they raise money in ignorance [of the truth of the root cause of why people are poor—1 Timothy 6:10: The love of money is the root of all evil…and Isaiah 1:21-23] that harms. (Remember that Paul is writing TO Timothy–a rabbi–in all of 1 Timothy 6; which principles are FOR pastors and their congregations TODAY.) But while providing ointment the root cause of the poor and down trodden continues and grows because the splinter is not being talked about or discussed. But they love to tout their success (there is no success for the Kingdom of God) exposing themselves as hypocrites to God (religious organizations exist primarily to benefit those running the organizations because they are not really helping the poor). If confronted with the truth (aletheia) that their raised money is not helping the poor because the Federal Reserve, the government, and the cronies of the government, etc. are destroying many, many, more people they will not quit raising money because they do not want to give up being able to tout their success at giving or they will not give up their [their] ministries. So if they are faced with the truth (aletheia) they are not set free but are enslaved. They prefer to sound their trumpet of their success; and they speak like hypocrites:
1 Take heed that ye do not your alms before men, to be seen of them: otherwise ye have no reward of your Father which is in heaven.
2 Therefore when thou doest thine alms, do not sound a trumpet before thee, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.
3 But when thou doest alms, let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth:
4 That thine alms may be in secret: and thy Father which seeth in secret himself shall reward thee openly.
Some ask, should I not know how my tithes and gifts are being used. Certainly. And you can ask the business office of the congregation to show you the books and records to answer this question. Or a business meeting, with only members present, can be held to provide that answer to this question.
God help us. We do not discuss and, therefore, do anything about the infection and just put on ointment. The root cause is stated by 1 Timothy 6:10 and Isaiah 1:21-23. Austrian economists can easily explain the infection and further show that providing ointment only makes the infection grow and get worse. The splinter—root cause must be removed. This is the truth (aletheia) but because the truth is not discussed and understood, people are not free but enslaved—if you know the truth (aletheia) the truth (aletheia) will set you free.
See: Jesus and Paul talked much about money! Who turned over the money changers in the temple (His Father’s temple)?
